Resolution: Protection and Integration of Young Refugees in Europe
The on-going war in Syria since 2011 accounts for the world’s largest humanitarian crisis since the outbreak of World War II1. An entire generation of children and young people are being exposed to violence and war, and are held back from their access to basic rights. More than 12.2 million Syrians are in need of humanitarian assistance. Approximately 7.6 million Syrians are internally displaced, accounting for the largest number in any country worldwide. Over 4 million Syrians have fled the country since the outbreak of the war - half of them children.
